Last Friday the team of volunteers of Metaphora, we went to do a garbage cleaning on the beaches of the town.
We separated the garbage that we were collecting in bags, to be able to recycle the materials later.
We found very strange things like, plastic toys, broken shoes and even a dead rat!
Above all we found many plastic things, it was the most filled bag.
One thing that surprised me was that the broken glass bottles are transformed into stones, due to the erosion of the sea and sand.
We ended the hot morning swimming in the refreshing sea of the country, with the desire that the people who saw us clean on the beach take up their minds and throw away their waste.
And finely I think that this experience will make us reflect on the possible uses of things before throwing them away.
